What the Nazis Stole from Richard Neumann (and the search to get it back).
This event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network. TOUR IS FOR LFV AND FHNN MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ONLY.
This is a docent-led tour of the Richard Neumann Collection currently on loan to the Worcester Art Museum in recognition of Dr. Neumann's commitment to make his collection accessible to the public.
The Richard Neumann exhibit presents 14 paintings and sculptures from the once extensive art collection of Dr. Richard Neumann (1879-1959), recently reunited following his and his family's efforts over 75 years to regain possession of them. Following Nazi Germany's annexation of Austria in 1938, Neumann's collection was seized through forced sales as the family fled first from Vienna and later from Paris to Cuba. This exhibition presents the extraordinary story of Richard Neumann—a discerning collector committed to promoting the role of the arts in civic life, the family's persecution during World War II, and the long struggle to reassemble the collection. It represents a small fraction of his collection that has been successfully restituted to his heirs.
